The third round of the English FA Cup continues on Sunday with three big name clubs playing games. Consider a parlay pick between Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United.

Bet on the FA Cup now and take advantage of a holiday deal from William Hill, where you can land a $100 betting bonus.

Though most fans will be watching La Liga or the big Juventus/Roma tilt in Serie A on Sunday, the FA Cup still offers some decent selections.

We usually focus on individual matches or betting specials here but today we'll look at a parlay combination featuring Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Blues are on the road to face Derby with kickoff slated for 9:15am EST and are listed at 1.44 to win outright. This should crack given the depth that Chelsea have and Jose Mourinho has assured a strong lineup with minimal injuries to play the second division side.

Combine that with a win for Manchester United at Old Trafford which also pays 1.44. United are hosting Swansea City with a 11:30am EST start. Now, the Red Devils are without Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young, and Rio Ferdinand for the game but have great depth as well and will be able to field a team capable of advancing to the fourth round.

Swansea also have injuries to their roster and both teams will be tired after the always hectic English holiday league schedule which means depth counts even more and that's where United will have the upperhand.

A $100 on Chelsea with United parlay will generate a return of $207. You could also add Liverpool into the mix but at 1.14 being offered against third division side Oldham.

Premiership club Sunderland should win at home against another third division club in Carlisle United and are offered at 1.40. Adding that to the parlay to make it a triple brings the return to $290 though one has to be concerned if the relegation battle that the Black Cats find themselves in will impact their roster.

Ensure that you take a look at the rosters 15 minutes before kickoff to see who is lining up for any team. William Hill has the lineups available through the live in play events.
